Ok, I am looking to create a tunnel from a DSL router (qwest) through two Cisco switches so that I can plug a laptop into that network from a separate location by connecting it to an RJ45 jack that plugs into the switch.

So, this is what it looks like:

1. Plug laptop into RJ45 wall jack at main site
    a. Jack terminated in cable room and plugs into Cisco catalyst 2960
    b. Switch connects via fiber to switch at remote site (same model)

2. At the remote site:
    a. Plug cable from switch (Cisco catalyst 2960) to RJ45 wall jack
    b. Connect cable from wall jack to DSL Modem/router
    c. Router gives DHCP address

3. Have the network separated from the domain and other IP addresses for testing purposes.

Is this possible through virtual networking?

I found this, but I'm not sure if this is the right direction to take.

Your on the right path. The best way to do this is: -

On Switch A & B set the link port up as a trunk
       switchport trunk encapsulation dotq1
       switchport mode trunk
Set Switch A up as a VTP Server
         Cisco_Sw1(config)#vtp mode server
         Cisco_Sw1(config)#vtp domain companyname
Set Switch B up as a VTP Client
         Cisco_Sw1(config)#vtp mode client
         Cisco_Sw1(config)#vtp domain companyname
Create a Vlan on Switch A (Vlan 2)
       Cisco_Sw1#configure terminal
        Cisco_Sw1(config)#vlan 10
          Cisco_Sw1(config-vlan)#name SAN
Then put the relevant switch ports in Vlan 10
   switchport mode access
    switchport access vlan 10
